I'd take a closer look at the Steelers D-line before labelling the Patriots as 'old' or whatever it was you were attempting to do.
Please refer me to where I said the Steelers D-line was "young" or younger than the Patriots..

What I said was that a 27 year old lineman with a history of injuries who is unable to play the first 6 games of the season because he has not recovered from offseason knee surgery has to be a point of concern and further noted that players with significant knee injuries can often have their skills erode in their mid-20s. If Casey Hampton had not been able to play the first six games of the 2005 season after his 2004 knee injury I would have been very concerned even though he was 27 at the time.

If this board can provide a crayon font I will use it the next time I have the audacity to claim the Pats are not the bestest most wonderfulest team of all time and that not all news about the Pats is good news

Nothing lasts forever
